A 3D printing and design competition has a $1500 printer and enough flament to keep you printing into the new year. A Santa’s sack of 3D printing related prizes are also up for grabs.
The winner will receive a Sindoh 3DWox DP2000 and $500 of 3D printing filament. The full requirements are available on the MyMiniFactory site, but the basic requirement states “we are looking to bring Santa into the 21st century.”
Quite what this might look like is left to the reader’s imagination.
A user friendly desktop 3D printer
This Tinkercad Christmas competition is the third pairing between Autodesk and MyMiniFactory and follows an API integration between the two enterprises announced in April this year. This feature allows Tinkercad users to share their designs to MyMiniFactory, making it easier for designers to show their work to millions of users each month.
Korean based Sindoh recently released the 3DWox DP2000. The FFF 3D printer is intended to be a user friendly desktop machine and is built by a company with over 50 years manufacturing experience in the 2D world.
The 3DWox DP2000 includes features such as Wi-Fi, a built in camera for print monitoring, assisted bed levelling, a cartridge based filament management system and a built-in 5″ touch screen.
